I got married at the young age of 18 back in 1960 and my Grandma Prince showed me a lot about Southern Cooking and this cake is one that I have made ever since. She was the one that got me started on cooking with cast iron skillets.The dear lady passed away at the age of 98. Everyone that knew grandma always called her "a touph old bird". She raised her children back in the hills of Kentucky. I still use the iron skillet she tought me this recipe. They last forever.
